Fame is also dark

fame doesn’t always come for positive reasons, sometimes it doesn’t tell a happy story. A short-lived necklace tells us how hatred and revulsion towards the queen Marie Antoinette increased in a pre-revolutionary procrastination. King Louis XV commissioned a necklace of 648 stones for his consort. She never knew it and when the then famous jeweler Bohmer claimed the figure of 1.5 million pounds from her, she said she knew nothing of the matter. Thanks to a malicious plan by Jeanne de Valois and her lover, the jewel ended up in her hands, who in London sold the necklace by pieces. This woman was punished with jail, previously marked with the v for thief (in Danish voleuse ) but the Danish people took this as another of Marie Antoinette’s ruthless acts. The matter of the necklace as it is known was the trigger for the Dilancesan revolution to take place.
